F. E. Trimbach

Riesling de chez Riesling. Pierre Trimbach delivers the good if you like your wines to be dry.

Pinot Blanc 2005

Soft white fruit on the nose and palate with reasonable acidity. A nice enough drink.

Riesling 2006

A pleasing citrus nose, some creaminess. Nice fruit and good acidity on the palate. Should be a nice enough drink now with food.

Riesling Reserve 2006

Pretty, fine aromas. A good creaminess to it. Very pleasing fruit and a nice body. This seems fleshier than this wine usually is; making it, for such a basic wine at least, reasonably tits.

Riesling Cuvee M 2003

From the Mandelberg Grand Cru. Ripe, buxom pineapple fruit that expresses itself very clearly. It is mineral, too. This exists a lot on the palate as well which, along with the good acidity, keeps this lively.

Risling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2002

Nice spiced ripe apple fruit. There is a hint of petrol but it leans more toward ripe citrus. The palate has a concentrated depth of flavour and great acidity. Perfectly harmonious.

Riesling Clos Saint Hune 2003

Really ripe exotic flavours to inhale and enjoy. The palate is a touch fat, with merely passable acidity. It just manages to be nicely balanced and I love its complexity. Yum.

Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2000

Nice limy green fruit, with a lovely mineral tang. The palate has serious stuffing, lots of weight and plenty of acidity. An excellent wine that is completely Trimbach in style.

Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 1997

A really complex nose. There is a lot going on there: honey, limes, melon, apple, creaminess. The palate is open and lovely. Great fragrance. Great fun now but with a lot of life ahead.

Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 1995

Very mineral nose that has a strange ginger bread character to it, this is not off-putting, though. Real elegance and finesse on the palate with a lovely developed finish. Nice age to drink it.

Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2001 375th anniversary cuvee

An expressive, vivacious nose of compelling ripe fruit and a lot of stony fruit. The palate really draws you in, with lots of ripe fruit and really sophisticated minerality. Great finish.

Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 1990

Lovely nose that explodes with petrol action. Real complexity here. It is complex on the palate, too, with refined fruit and great acid. Seriously up for drinking with a lot of pleasure.

Riesling Clos Saint Hune 1983

Super ripe fruit on the nose and real creamy minerality too. This smells utterly wonderful. The palate sings a song of refined beauty which really fuels my passion for this wine.

    So. Despite your questionable vinuous kiddy-fiddling the more mature wines delivered greater pleasure? Ha! No doubt you will suggest it is a vintage thing, but even so. Perhaps you should enjoy things in their season a little more. I fear we are getting to old for the “Will be super in x years thing…”. Come on man! Enjoy what you are supposed to enjoy in its time.
